* The heroine of ''TheTwelveKingdoms''. There's a tinge of deconstruction, however, as Youko has to massively adjust to her new circumstances and seriously dislikes having people bow to her. Yet ultimately, massive political headaches and frequent coups are still preferable to her old life.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'' uses the "evil real family" subversion, with a surprising lack of GenreBlindness--the BigBad is [[GenreSavvy aware of this trope]] and [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy exploits it]].

* The ''{{Temeraire}}'' series has an odd take on this. While the [=titular=] dragon ''is'' considered a valued and unique [[OrganicShip piece of ordinance]] in the British Aerial Corps; when he goes to China he finds out that A) dragons in general are treated as large [=citizens/subjects=] with wings rather than talking warbeasts and B) ''he'' is by rights part of the Imperial Household. While he does return to Britain it is with plans for reform on his mind.
